My grandson plays Little League Baseball and catches part-time. He always had to borrow other kids' equipment which was a problem. This solved the problem at a great price and will keep him protected while he does what he loves.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Catcher's Dad Not bad for a little guy
Bought this set for my seven-year-old son. I measured him prior to going into the store and was mildly irritated that this kit doesn't reference the normal measurements for catcher's gear. (Around the head, collarbone to bottom or torso and shin length.) If you dig a little bit into the box you'll find the fitting information, but the initial sizing guide for the gear is only that it will fit your kid if he/she is between 4'4" and around 5' tall.
Got the box home and opened it up. The helmet is pretty exceptional. So are the knee/shin pads. The chest pad is nothing to write home about. It's really pretty flimsy. That being said, I don't anticipate that this is cause for much concern. At this age, kids are playing "coach-pitch" so it isn't very likely that he's going to be taking any rockets to the chest. It's thick enough that it will take the sting off of anything that bounces into his chest.
Considering the age of the kids that this set will fit, and the cost, I have to say that it's a pretty good value. It's more than enough to keep kids safe, it's comfortable and durable enough that (if donated after it's outgrown) it will probably provide years of use at the lower leagues. DON'T FORGET TO BUY A BAG. This kit doesn't come with one.
